Last Sunday we rode along the gravel path on the south side of Scotchmans creek from Stanley avenue near the Huntingdale wetlands up to the freeway, today on the ride home I decided to take a mini-adventure, retrace the route in reverse and take a few photos as I went.
Turn left off Forster road and onto the gravel track, no council vehicles today, no snakes either, so both warning signs can probably be ignored.
I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.
Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried php, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on emacs org-mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is org-mode and hugo.
